Dear Arabnet,
I was wondering what other plant researchers were using for "housekeeping
genes" in their Taqman quantitiative PCR reactions (or Northern blots).
It's my impression that in many instances genes such as GAPDH and actin
aren't suitable to be used as housekeeping genes. This leaves 18S rRNA and
the like. Any further suggestions?
Many thanks for your input,
